Johns that have been frequenting the U2-owned Clarence Hotel in Dublin will have to find what they’re looking for elsewhere.

According to U.K.’s The Times, the Clarence Hotel is suing Target Escorts for listing on their website the hotel is a great place to meet high-end escorts. The Clarence Hotel is co-owned by Bono, The Edge and Belfast businessman Paddy McKillen.   

The Dublin section of Target Escorts website is currently reading “page not found.” However, The Times reports the site once read, “The members of Ireland’s most legendary rock band U2 not only reside in posh hotels — they also own the best house in town.”

The copy continued, “At the Clarence hotel, with your elegant VIP escort lady in Dublin, you will be in good company.” 

The Clarence Hotel has issued the following statement:

The operators of the Clarence hotel are taking robust legal action against the owners of this disreputable website. The Clarence hotel has a complete and total zero-tolerance policy for this or any other type of antisocial behavior. All appropriate security and other measures are in place at the hotel and under constant review.”

In short: If you’re caught “moving in mysterious ways” in the lobby of the Clarence Hotel, it won’t end well for you.
